From their Facebook page, “SRS Prototyping is a professional prototyping, model making and sculpting company, dedicated to providing exacting detail, excellent quality and total customer satisfaction. Each piece, whether a one of a kind item a model kit or master pattern for mass production, is created with the same painstaking attention to detail and fine craftsmanship that we are known for.”

In terms you and I can understand, these folks make incredible, jaw-dropping models, and make doing so look easy.

I’ve been checking out the photos on their Facebook page off and on this morning, and the stuff they’ve done is a……..wait for it…….mazing. They’ve done stuff like the space station from 2001: A Space Odyssey, the original Battlestar Galactica, figurines and weapons, and a host of other things. Go on, go follow the link I have up there to their FB page. I’ll wait.

Back yet? Okay, then.

Their work was brought to my attention earlier this morning, when I was tagged in a Facebook post linking to a website that’s chronicling the SRS Prototyping’s latest project: a 1:144 scale model of the U.S.S. Sagittarius, AKA the tough little ship from the Star Trek Vanguard and Star Trek: Seekers novels. If I understand modeling terms correctly and based on the photos provided so far, this scale means that the finished model will be somewhere in the vicinity of a foot or so in length.

Translation: Big enough to hold and drool on. Check it out:

Go and give this a look if you haven’t already done so, and if you haven’t…why the hell not?

Many thanks to Dave Lewis on Facebook for providing the heads-up. I love it when fans take charge and just go and do stuff like this. I can’t wait to see the finished product, because based on what I’ve seen so far, this thing is going to kick six or seven kinds of ass.
